The pilgrimage to the small French island of Mont Saint-Michel attracts a large number of tourists to the excellent hotels of this place. The Abbey on the Rock is a magical landmark that takes you into the deep past of this place, and the locals call it with deep respect and love — “Mount St. Michael”.
Mont Saint Michel is very popular among tourists and believers, as well as many oceanographers. And all because of the huge number of stories and legends that have accumulated over the centuries since the founding and the geographical miracle — the highest sea tide of the euro continent, which reaches almost ten meters. At the peak of the tide, the fortress can only be reached by boat.
It is a very amazing place that you should definitely visit. But what hotel to choose for an exciting visit and an unforgettable vacation, our rating of the best resort complexes in Mont Saint-Michel will tell you. All you have to do is buy flights to Europe and visit the 709 abbey.
